Saturday. 27th.

Morning pleasant. At the Office reading as usual. Wrote a letter to my Mother in answer to one received from her some days since, which I omitted to mention, and that also of a kind one from John.1 Afternoon, read a portion of Mr. Burke on the French Revolution, a third or fourth reading. J. Otis called and paid me a visit of an hour or more, conversing upon matters in general. Evening, as the subject for discussion at the Debating Society was not a very suitable one, I went to the Office, and read Boswell’s Life of Johnson together with his pamphlet of the False Alarm, upon the Middlesex Election.
